We’re curating a holiday magazine in collaboration with Flipboard. Check out Home for the Holidays With MyDomaine” for all your chic entertaining needs, from tablescapes to home décor.

“It’s official: Friendsgiving is the new “it’ holiday, Pinterest told us last week. While the real holiday is not going anywhere, millennials are now taking the opportunity to make turkey day last a little longer by hosting a dinner of their own for their friends. This year alone, there have been more than 500,000 Friendsgiving ideas saved on Pinterest, and the search term is up 13 times since last year.

Thanksgiving is traditionally spent with family, but this month we could all use a little quality time to get together with friends and be grateful for the things that are positive in the world today—despite the recent display of the contrary. People are now looking for ways to establish their own traditions with friends as another family. 

Want to host your first Friendsgiving this year? Pinterest analyzed thousands of pins to bring us the biggest trends surrounding the holiday. Take note, and make your pre-Thanksgiving celebration one to remember.

Make It Official


“Over the past two years, Friendsgiving has surpassed both Thanksgiving and holiday parties in general as the main event that warrants an official invitation,” says Pinterest. Even if it’s a quick printable or virtual invite, take the time to formally invite your friends. You won't be the only one: People are now pinning nearly six times more Friendsgiving invitations than holiday party ones.
